Microsoft Ignite – The Tour : London

05 March 2019

Last week, London decided to have the warmest couple of days in February since records began, and Rachel Hawley and I (along with many, many other people) decided to spend them inside the ExCel Centre in London Docklands for Microsoft Ignite – The Tour. Rachel and I were staffing the DevExpress booth, discussing our products with attendees, and – purely coincidentally, I’m sure – giving away swag. The gloves with the touch-sensitive fingertips were completely unnecessary that week, but I’m sure have been used since.

DevExpress swag

We did have some great conversations with people, whether they were already DevExpress customers or were contemplating using our controls and frameworks in the future. We made lots of notes: ideas for future features, insights into what developers were doing with our controls, concerns people had with our products. Needless to say, those notes are being shared with our dev teams.


And it is a truism that the best demos to show off in the booth are those that are online. Especially those with dashboards and visualizations…

Demonstrating charting

Of course, I shouldn’t forget that we also met some old friends from the Microsoft world: hi, Betsy, Seth, and Scott!

After some successful “Ignites” – Berlin, Sydney, and now London – we’re debating whether to attend another, and where. Let us know!
